The Cherub Inn

Famous for Fine Food, Service and Hospitality

The Cherub Inn dates from 1380 and still retains many of its original features, including some old ships' timbers, and its original use is thought to have been as a Merchant's House. It is the oldest building in Dartmouth – possibly the oldest "town house" in the South Hams – and is a Grade 2* Listed Building, a category reserved for the most interesting of smaller buildings.

The Cherub Inn prides itself on being a Cask Ale House and Restaurant and offers an extensive menu, from lunch time light snacks and bar snacks to a la carte meals in our restaurant.
